Types of Hearing Aids


Pricing for most hearing aids today is determined by the type of hearing aid chosen and level of technology.

  •  
  • Wireless
    Hearing Aids:

    Utilize Bluetooth technology or 2.4 GHz. These hearing aids communicate with each other to help you hear better in noise. Cell phones, TV, iPad, computers or any Bluetooth device can be connected wirelessly to the hearing aid to stream audio.
  • Analog
    Hearing Aids:

    Least expensive hearing aid on the market and are non-digital. These tend to be the least expensive hearing aids available today. They are simple analog amplifiers that amplify sounds much like the way a home/car stereo amplifier amplifies everything equally.

The Three Most Common Types of Hearing Loss

  • senior adults conductive hearing loss

    Conductive hearing loss

    Conductive hearing loss occurs when there is a failure in the conduction of sound waves through the ear canal, eardrum, or middle ear. Something is blocking the transmission of sound to the nerve of hearing. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including: wax impaction, ear canal infection-fungus or object in the canal, ruptured ear drum, fluid behind the eardrum or middle ear infection. Conductive hearing loss usually involves a reduction in sound level, or the ability to hear faint sounds. This type of hearing loss can often be medically or surgically corrected.
  • senior women sensorineural hearing loss

    Sensorineural hearing loss

    Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear (cochlea) or to the nerve pathways from the inner ear (retrocochlear) to the brain. Sensorineural hearing loss cannot be medically or surgically corrected. It is a permanent loss. Sensorineural is a type of hearing loss in which the root cause lies in vestibulocochlear nerve, the inner ear, or central processing centers of the brain. Sensorineural hearing loss can be mild, moderate, or severe, including total deafness.

    Mixed hearing loss

    Mixed hearing loss can occur when conductive hearing loss occurs in combination with a sensorineural hearing loss. In other words, there may be damage in the outer or middle ear and in the inner ear (cochlea) or auditory nerve.
